 \section{Experiences with the \LaTeX\texttt{-dev} formats}
+As reported in the previous \emph{\LaTeX{} News}, we have made a pre-release
+version of the \LaTeX{} kernel available as \LaTeX\texttt{-dev}. Overall, the
+approach of having an explicit testing release has been positive: it is now
+readily-available in \TeX{} systems and is getting real use beyond the team.
+The current
+release has been tested by a number of users, and we have had useful feedback
+on a range of new ideas. This has allowed us to fix issues in several of the
+new features described below. We thank the dedicated users who have been
+trying out the development formats, and encourage others to do so. Pre-testing
+in this way does mean that for the vast majority of users, problems are solved
+before they even appear!
